A blast of snow for some, a wintry mix for others. Officials across upstate New York are scrambling to meet the challenge of the latest storm.

Airports, communities, utilities and emergency responders across the region are preparing for the first substantial winter storm to hit the region in nearly two years.

The winter storm that will bring nearly a foot and a half of snow could cause power outages, travel delays and back aches as people dig out.
Clinton County Director of Emergency Services Eric Day says he’s concerned because it is the first winter storm of the year and the first substantial storm in a couple years.
